Mediation has been proven effective to eliminate the delays and excessive costs in both the prosecuting and defending of civil lawsuits and workers’ compensation matters. Mediation allows the parties to amicably resolve their differences and avoid the stress, frustration, and uncertainty that comes with going to trial.
By employing an alternative dispute resolution method like mediation, the parties are able to be guided towards a voluntarily and mutually acceptable resolution of their differences. While aiding the parties toward this goal, the mediator allows the parties to make their own decisions and resolve the conflicts on their own terms. All proceedings are confidential and aimed towards an amicable resolution. None of the participants to the mediation waive any legal rights by agreeing to mediate.
